Paul Raymond

Paul RaymondPaul Raymond, Britain`s answer to Hugh Hefner died yesterday aged 82.

I thought it worth a mention as he is synonymous in the UK with strip clubs and girly magazines. He managed to be a “porn king” with a less sleazy demeanour than many of those who attempted to emulate him. Maybe that was because he was the first, or maybe it`s just his legendary status that illuminates him in a glowing light. Either way there`s a metal pole with a nubile angel waiting for him somewhere.

Whether she has wings or horns is I suppose a matter for his maker to decide. Personally I`d opt for the one with horns. If you want my opinion, to paraphrase Milton “Better to reign in Soho than to serve in Westminster”.
